    Hi all,

    Been a busy camper latly.
    But man am I pumped it's spring :) Still abit chilly outside..but the warmth is on it's way.All the tulips ,daffodils, crocases,hyasinth are peeking through.I started about 500 seeds yesturday,so in a few weeks they'll be ready to plant.soon the markets will be full of all the wonderful spring produce. I'll gas up my weber and clean out my smoker. I can't wait to get my fingers in the soil, or see the fruit tree's flower. I love this time of year. I wish everyone a happy and peaceful spring.

    For me, the essences of spring are: fresh asparagus; the aroma of grass cut for the first time; daffodils (our ground is still rock hard frozen in Wisconsin); trees budding (achoo!) and actually feeling the sun on your skin. Hooray! Won't be long now! Of course, it's spring in the northern hemisphere. It's fall in the south. Any thoughts from below the equator?

    Here my daffodils scattered all over my gardens are in full bloom, rhodies are starting to come out, and I'm itching to put in my herb garden....my lawn is so high really needs a good mowing this weekend.
